Last Minute Gift: Marker Mugs

gift mugs
Christmas is exactly one week away! It is hard to believe, but don't worry--it's not too late to make an awesome handmade gift for a friend!

These marker mugs are so easy and can be customized for each person! All you need is a plain ceramic mug (be sure it is oven and food safe), a pencil, and permanent markers!

First, clean your mug and then pencil sketch your idea. The pencil marks can be erased or cleaned with soap and water if you mess up. When you are ready, use a permanent marker to draw directly onto the cup. Last, heat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake your mug for 30 minutes to set the ink. This gift would be perfect with a bag of coffee to the caffeine fanatic that you know and love. Maybe you will make one for yourself!

If hand washed, these mugs will last a long time. The possibilities are endless!


It's fun to use metallic markers too!
